On the excitement scale, this one leans toward ho-hum.

Despite its size and subject matter, Wild Safari 3D is pretty tame and two-dimensional.

Wild Safari isn't the most original large-format movie ever, but at least it's one that's most appropriate for a museum such as the Orlando Science Center.

This is 3-D cinematography at its best, and parents who are looking for educational films for their children that will hold their interest are in luck: Youngsters will be mesmerized.

Shadows on the Wall

So raw and real that we really feel like we're right there. And if you've been on a safari before, you know how real it is.

With equal emphasis on animals and environment, this 45-minute feature is enlightening, impressive, educational and, above all, enjoyable.

Very much like a National Geographic special, only you feel like you're in it... IMAX is still the next best thing to being there.

Director Stassen opts to avoid leaping cats out for blood, instead presenting an interesting depth of field in faraway places, populated by the animals we learned to love as children and living in their natural habitats.

You may get better close ups of the animals in wild life documentaries, but Wild Safari 3D, offers us a sense of being there.

For close-up views of large African animals in the wild, this IMAX spectacle is hard to beat.

The film's raison d'etre is the simple sight of large wildlife up close and personal, and it's mesmerizing.

If you want a more realistic safari than this, you're going to have to catch a flight (unless you live in Africa).

Despite the title you may find it considerably tamer than a great many nature documentaries, but it's a solid, respectable introduction to the South African preserves.

Quite a trip--a seven-story-tall, very much in-your-face, danger-free excursion into the authentic wilds of South Africa.
